4th November 2010
Once again I have a cold shower, as no hot water seems to be available. I am at the point where I am no longer trying all that hard to have a hot shower...
Otherwise, I have no complaints about the camping, as we have the whole camping space for ourselves, and the site remains well-lid throughout the night.
It would of course been nice to stay in one of the lodges. Kudu is the nicest complex we have been staying in, with tasteful, „arty“ lodges, restaurant and bar in a beautifully maintained garden. They are also working on a swimming pool.
Unfortunately, I find it hard to appreciate my surrounding. First, my Netbook dies on me and refuses to be revived. How am I going to update my blog now? I got so used to typing up my handwritten notes on the Netbook, uploading the latest adventures on a USB stick and then updating the blog whenever there is a decent internet connection. I’ve got attached to my little routine. Now all I can do is handwrite my notes until we get home.
An attitude of „Hakuna matata“ (No worries) will never come naturally to me, but when I next have trouble uploading my photos onto a computer and then on my USB stick and then my compact camera develops a fault, I am positively stressed. None of these technical problems seem to have any logical reason I can think of. And the timing couldn’t be worse, as we are going on our biggest wildlife trip!
I’m not surprised when the traditional dancing and drumming show stops just when I’ve finally made my way from the camping area to the performance stage, stumbling along by the ever weakening light of my torch.
I don’t get a single photo, but a performer still runs after me, asking for a contribution. Now I really have enough. The only solution I can come up with: Bed!
„One day at a time, take one day at a time,“ becomes my lullaby.
